Hey Texans! What a year it’s been! First we had the extreme cold and then the long hot, days of summer.
Your home has been working hard to keep you comfortable and happy. Between all of the appliances, devices, lights, and more, all of that electricity usage can be quite costly.
Luckily, Energy Ogre helps Texas residents save money on their electricity bill.
How to Save Money on Electricity Bills
You probably know some of the basics of saving money on your energy bill. Turn off items when not in use. Shut the door. Get energy saving appliances. Use a programmable thermostat.
But even when following these tips, you can still save even more money.
Texans that live in deregulated areas are able to shop from a list of retail electricity providers. Unfortunately, researching and shopping around can be frustrating and time consuming.
Advocates for Better Electricity Rates
This is where Energy Ogre comes in. Founded in 2013, this technology business is staffed and led by people with lengthy background and expertise in the electricity business, particularly in Texas. Using a consumer-focused approach with cutting edge technology and algorithms, Energy Ogre helps Texans find the best electricity rates and save up to 40% on energy bills.
If you are curious about how much money you could save, check out the interactive savings calculator. It will give you an estimate on what you could pay over the next year based on your current usage and rates.
Energy Ogre takes care of your electricity buying experience from start to finish. They take care of the plan selection, enrollment, management of any issues, interaction with the provider, and renewal when the time comes. All of this is backed by their satisfaction guarantee.

You make payments directly to your energy company. Your information is safe and secure and only shared with your energy company.
There is no contract and you can cancel at any time.
How it Works
For only $10 a month, Energy Ogre will constantly monitor the marketplace for you, on the lookout for the lowest deal.
After signing up, you’ll receive updates every step along the way.
If you switch energy companies, the onboarding process usually takes 2-3 business days. You won’t even need to contact your current provider. Energy Ogre handles that for you. They will automatically cancel with your current provider and ensure the switch goes smoothly.
Then, they will continue to manage your account to stay on the lookout for better options, factoring in potential cancellation fees.
More Information about Energy Ogre
Before I use or recommend a product I like to do some research about the company and read testimonials.
Fox 4 News in Dallas ran a story about how Energy Ogre has saved Texans over $21.64 million. In 2016, the reporter Steve Noviello said he saved a couple thousand dollars just in that one year!
Here’s a testimonial video from Nickie who uses the money she saves for grocery bills and to put back into savings. The amount she is saving with Energy Ogre is about half the amount of what she had been spending.
Unfortunately, I live in a regulated market and cannot take advantage of this amazing service, but the majority of Texas, around 85%, is deregulated and open to a competitive electricity market.
If you’re ready to save an average of 30-50% on your energy bill, then head over to Energy Ogre to start the simple process of getting the best deal on electricity. To get one free month use the code CHACHING.
